Sugar snap peas are a cross between the common English pea and snow peas. Both the pod and peas inside are edible. Choose pods that are plump, crisp and bright green. Before using, snap off the stem ends, pulling to remove any strings.
Meats used for stir-frying or sautéing should be sliced thinly across the grain so the meat fibers are short, resulting in more tender cooked meat. For easier slicing, freeze the meat for about 30 min. before slicing. Before slicing the meat, place the meat on a cutting board and look for the direction of the grain. (The meat will have small lines running in one direction.) You may need to slice the meat in 2 different directions to determine the direction of the grain. Use a sharp slicing knife to cut the meat across the fibers into thin slices. Or if you have an electric knife, you can use that to quickly slice the meat. When cooking the meat, be careful to not overcook it. These thin meat strips will cook in just a few minutes.
This Asian-inspired meal is low in calories, but packed with flavor. As a bonus, the sugar snap peas provide a good source of vitamin C.
